Today the 2014 World Series of Poker will continue with two new bracelet events, the first of which is this Event #15: $3,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em. This marks the second six-handed no-limit hold'em event of the summer, the first of which was a $1,500 buy-in that attracted 1,587 players.
That tournament, which finished last night, saw Justin Bonomo get heads-up with Mike Sowers and over come a 4-to-1 chip deficit to capture the event’s $449,980 first-place prize and coveted gold bracelet. It also put Bonomo in the lead for the 2014 WSOP Player of the Year.
As for this event, last year's tournament drew 807 players and saw German Martin Finger earn his first WSOP bracelet and $506,764 in prize money after topping a final table that included Matt Stout, Matt Berkey, and David Pham.
Today's field is expected to draw plenty of notables including 2013 WSOP Main Event champ Ryan Riess, WSOP Circuit star Rex Clinkscales, and WSOP bracelet winner Jackie Glazier just to name a few. OF course the field will be much more saturated, and PokerNews will be providing you with live updates, chip counts, interviews, and videos straight from the floor.
The plan for the day is to play 10 one-hour levels. Cards will be in the air at noon local time, which is just over an hour from now. Join us then as we bring you all the early action from Event #15: $3,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em.
